Hey Mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Wrapping up our week of the number 5, which is also super funny because this is Episode 35 and it’s the week of my 35th birthday. So sometimes things just work out that way. But Mama’s daily dose is.. stage five, clinger. Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.
Shout out to Wedding Crashers which is a fantastic movie for giving us the term stage five clinger. And if you are a mama, you have probably experienced this at some point, ranging anywhere from a couple hours, days, weeks, months. Who knows. But I experienced this I feel to the nth degree when I went on vacation with the kids and Saxon who was about a year and a half was basically glued to me. If I came in the room, he didn’t want to be with anyone else. I had to hold him about 24/7 and it was a lot. And I know you can relate to that. I mean, I love being with my kids. I love spending time with them. But let me tell you my love language is not physical touch. And I feel like everybody else in my family, my husband and my two children – that is their love language. So a lot of times I just need a little break from the physical touch too and Saxon he is the sweetest kid and he’ll want to like hug and kiss and snuggle you which it melts my heart, but at the same time I’m like my arms need a break my back needs a break mentally, physically, I just need a break from this kid that will not get off of me. So if you are experiencing a stage five clinger right now I’m there with you, Mama. And I feel for you.
Just a little side note, if you could hear some screaming in the background. That is my cat. Like this is my life, I’m recording in my closet. And you know what, this is just mama life and I’m not even going to edit it out. It’s Friday. Have a beautiful day and a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it.
